    KY - 7 year old walks away from plane crash, 4 dead

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/p...crash-27973521

    Sgt. Dean Patterson of the Kentucky State Police says a disoriented 7-year-old girl walked to a home and reported that she had been involved in a plane crash. The resident called 911 and the girl was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    Authorities found the aircraft a couple of hours later and confirmed that the pilot and three other passengers were killed.

    Terrible how tragic the poor girl witnessing your parents and sister die. I hope they R.I.P and the young girl gets plenty of support to cope. I don't like these small planes they seem to crash quite frequently.

    God bless her broken little heart. She is so brave. May she find peace and happiness in her future. Prayers for her and her family.

    Can't. Even. Imagine.
    Poor, sweet, girl.
    I hope she is surrounded by those that love her, and great counseling in the days/years to come.

    I started following this story early today, read numerous articles, and visited her family's FBs as well. Lots of photos, videos, happy times right up to the end.

    This just wasn't supposed to happen!

    Father had a long history with flying...reportedly got his pilot's license before he did his automobile driver's license.

    In addition to an obviously loving extended family and friends who are there for her wholeheartedly, there is perhaps some more hope for little Sailor's future. Her older sister (half-sister possibly?) has been married just two years and no children so far. Sailor also has an older adult brother (half too?). Whatever they work-out for her, I strongly believe she will receive all the love and support she needs...which provides some consolation.

    RIP to the family...Mom, Dad, sister, and cousin. Sending love, strength, and support to this brave and blessed little girl.

    This article has many pictures, one of them being the actual terrain this brave girl walked through in order to get help.

    In the picture it would seem that the plane went down in the wooded area bottom right. If I eye spied correctly the home she went to is right at the turn in the road, center right. jmo

    Little would her parents ever suspect that the survival skills they taught their young daughter would serve her so well in this traumatic situation. What a legacy they have given her.
